Driving down the street one day, something changed for new St. Luke’s of the Mountains Pastor Rev. Robert Holman. “Circumstances aligned themselves and I found myself praying to Jesus. I never prayed to Jesus before. I prayed to God,” he said. “There was a problem with my employment, it bothered me to no end, and I just said ‘Jesus, you have to make sure things are going to be OK. And then everything changed, and I wasn’t worried anymore. I was no longer concerned, no longer worried.

KIMBERLIE ZAKARIAN Do you ever struggle with secret temptations? We all do. Often, we try to hide these thoughts or habits from our Lord, even though we understand that he knows all and sees all. Jesus empathizes with our temptations because he himself was tempted. The book of Matthew depicts our Lord's temptation in three areas: an appeal to his flesh (hunger), an appeal to presumption (a careless attitude toward grace), and an appeal to idolatry (pursuit of something greater than Christ's life)

A holy cross that symbolizes Jesus was dipped in holy water and “Holy Muron,” or oil, during the ceremony. The holy oil was boiled and blessed in Armenia and sent to Glendale for Tuesday’s ceremony, Deacon Tigran Garibjanyan said. “It is about clearing us from our sins, and we are also feeling Jesus coming into us,” Garibjanyan said.

Palm Sunday is approaching. As I reflect on the last days of Jesus? earthly life, I am amazed at how He suffered, as each of us do, with human feelings and circumstances. I see that He experienced monetary need (Matthew 21:2); anger (vs. 12); sleepiness (vs. 17); hunger (vs. 18); faith (vs. 19-21); doubt from others (vs. 23); and utter rejection (vs. 45). He endured the mortal feelings each of us has suffered at one time or another, but in greater magnitude than any of us have.

Hundreds of parishioners gathered inside St. Mary’s Armenian Apostolic Church Wednesday morning to celebrate Armenian Christmas. Many Armenian families Tuesday night honored the theophany — the birth of Jesus, his revelation to mankind and his baptism — by sharing a meal and staying indoors for the holy Christmas eve or going to church, said Hagop Tchagaspanian, the church’s Board of Trustees chairman. “The existence of two accepted dates for celebrating Christmas, Dec. 25 and Jan. 6, does not reflect a doctrinal issue,” he said.

In the March 13 Community Forum of the News-Press, we were surprised to find a reader taking issue with one of my sermon titles. Apparently, Dean Briggs objected to even considering the issue of "What Happens to People Who Have Never Heard of Jesus." In response, he asked rather sarcastically what happens to people who never heard of Gandhi, Buddha, Mozart, Stevie Ray Vaughn or baklava. At our 5-month-old baby church, the Church at Angeles Crest, we are very serious about Jesus, so I won't respond in kind to Mr. Briggs.

Does Easter make you happy? I mean beyond Easter egg hunts, chocolate bunnies and a new Easter dress, does Easter make you really happy? Thoughtful people realize that the implications of Easter go deeper than just the seasonal trappings draped in pastel colors. Easter speaks to our most profound fears and hopes. Does God care about me? Is there really life after death? Can I be forgiven? Can I go to heaven? These are the persistent questions of the soul swirling around Easter. That Jesus was raised bodily from the dead is a bold claim indeed.

Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health Center hosted a water blessing ceremony to celebrate Christmas days before the Jan. 6 date that marks the Epiphany, or the baptism of Jesus. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirosian, who was accompanied by fellow religious leaders, said the members of the Armenian Apostolic Church traditionally celebrate Christmas on Jan. 6. “At this most joyous time of the year, once again we thank God for another year, and for the greatest gift of all - the birth of our lord and savior, Jesus Christ.” Mardirosian led a ceremony in which he blessed water in a bowl, symbolizing Jesus' baptism by John the Baptist in the Jordan River.

It's the traditional Christmas season in America, but sometimes you get the wrong impression from the “holiday” offering from the public and businesses. I like to ask the “holiday” people what, who or why are you celebrating this Christmas time? One common response would be “because it's Christmas.” Fine, but also remember it's that time of the year to recognize that the Christmas celebration is all about the birthday of Jesus Christ, the symbol of worldwide Christianity, and is a federal observance for everyone.

Re: “ Has the economy damaged the work ethic? ” In Theory, April 28: Once again I'm amazed that the Rev. Bryan Griem can call himself a Christian. I thought Christianity was about love, empathy, compassion and care for those who are suffering, hurt and less fortunate. Instead we get Griem's Christianity of selfishness and greed when he states,” I tend mine and I reap” or “we Protestants.” He disdains the immigrant and unemployed. To him, it's us against them. What a very sad theology, which is completely opposite of what Jesus taught.
